A few named flats feature in this video by Otago University (2010): Moe’s, Bedlam Estate, Beaver Lodge, and the Pink Pussy.
“Point that thing somewhere else” / The Clean
This is one of the songs mentioned in Graeme Downes’s article referenced in an earlier blog post about the “It’s time to go flat” on Clyde Street.
A house at 111 Clyde Street, next to Footrot Flats, on which fans of The Clean painted the lyrics of “Sad Eyed Lady”. The flat came to be known, according to Graeme Downes, as the “It’s time to go” flat, after the final line in the song.

It’s time to go
A very new book on the market by Jeremy Hansem Patrick Reynolds and Jeremy Salmon, which checks out villas around the country – one is The Hilton on Clyde Street. It’s an utterly gorgeous book.
Check out a description at The Nile bookstore.
